Campus Sint Lucas

THE ABANDONED HOSPITAL IN BELGIUM

‘Campus Sint Lucas’ in Antwerpen was built just after the Second World War. It was built around the already existing castle Hof Van Delft, built in 1903 by architect Leonard Blomme.

The site was bought in 1945 and they started building the clinic in 1946. It took two years to complete the building. In 1987 the maternity wing closed down.

In the year 2000 the hospital closed, shortly the buildings were used as a home for asylum seekers. About 125 refugees found a home in the old clinic.

The buildings were abandoned in 2010. Within a year the buildings were in such a bad state they had to be demolished. Local youth and unwanted visitors trashed the place completely and even set fire to it several times. I visited the hospital ‘Campus Sint Lucas’ in 2011. Not much later, in the summer of 2011 the building was demolished. The protected old castle is still here today.
